Research Associate Professor, Research Lecturer or Post-doctoral Fellow Position for Information and Computer Sciences (Kagoshima university, Hiroshima-city university, and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)

Maximum three years, four positions for research Associate Professor, Research Lecturer or Post-doctoral Fellow is available. The project is supported by the Funding Program for Next Generation World-Leading Researchers(NEXT Program of Cabinet Office, Government Of Japan) and focuses on investigating and developing efficient 3D reconstruction method and system for capturing moving objects of human body both inside (by endscope) and outside (by multiple camera). Analysis and rendering technique of captured 3D data are also importatnt research topics. Research fields include, but are not limited to:
  • Computer Vision(CV)
  • 3D Computer Graphics(CG)
  • 3D Scanning
  • Medical imaging
  • VR and real-time system
Project abstract

Active vision systems are usually limited to either partial or static scene reconstructions. In our project, we develop a system and technique to acquire a dense shape of a moving object, escpeically human body, using a projector-camera system. To solve the problem, we propose a 3D reconstruction technique based on one-shot scanning method where the system consists of camera and a static pattern projector. Since a static pattern is used, fast reconstruction of fast moving objects is allowed. This is required to perform dynamic 3D modeling with high frame-rates. We also develop a multi-projectors-cameras system to capture entire body of human and micro-projector-camera system for endscope to capture inside human body.
